Good morning and Happy Saturday everyone! The coffee is ready and it’s a beautiful day with all that sunshine and blue sky and…well, there was sunshine and blue sky before the sun rose. Now it seems to be mostly cloudy. But it is supposed to be sunny and warm today, 46F (8C) for a high today. Then it kind of cools off again tomorrow. There we go, the sun is sort of shining again, very nice indeed. Right Muffin?
Hey, you don’t look very happy today. (you not tuck me in, so can’t go sleep) Well, I did try, but look at my hand. (wow, 10 bandaids, almost new record) Um, yes, well, that’s why we stopped the tuck in. (you gave me big shock, that not nice) You were lying on a wool blanket, it happens sometimes. (sure, blame blanket, but it me that sad) You scratched my hand, blood was dropping everywhere. (Muffin looks…yep, that was a good one) See? Now you’ve got a big smile. (um, rats, caught me) Come up here and curl up with me. (okay…with big smile, move over) You already have half the chair. (I like to stretch when I sleep) Here, how’s that? (better…snore) That was certainly fast. I was outside early this morning putting food out and I could hear Theodore calling, but I just couldn’t make out what direction it was coming from. I turn around and there he comes walking up the steps talking away.
Hi Theodore. Gerbil, gerbil. I see you survived the winter okay. Gerbil, gerbil. Yes, there was some cold weather, but most of the winter was nice this year. Gerbil, gerbil. That’s true, I do have a warm place to live and you’re outside all the time. But turkey’s are used to that. Gerbil, gerbil. Oh, no one warned you about how cold it would get or you would have moved south? It’s not easy to migrate, especially for wild turkeys. Gerbil, gerbil. You haven’t found a mate yet? I’m sure you will. Gerbil, gerbil. The only other turkey is another male? Hmm, that could be tough, you might have to travel around a bit to find a mate. He looks at me with silence. Gerbil, gerbil. Yes, that’s true, time for breakfast. Up he goes to the feeder and I come back inside. Busy morning. Quite a few redpolls around this morning too, seems to be getting more each day. Well, I hope you all have a wonderful Saturday and God bless!
Steve and Muffin.
